“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Friendship Follies (2019) (Part 1)”!

Hi, everyone!

Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate romance… which, let’s be honest, gets celebrated a lot. What doesn’t get celebrated as much is friendship. So let’s do it ourselves!

Friends are special people. They aren’t tied to us by romance, and often aren’t related to us by blood, and yet, they still choose to care about us and become a part of our lives.

… But before they realize exactly what they’ve gotten themselves into, let’s delay that epiphany with a flood of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Hello Harmonies”!

Hi, everyone!

Last week, we said, “Goodbye,” to the “old year” with a series of songs saying, “Sayonara,” to habits, relationships, hometowns, old ideas, and more: some sentimental, and some hilarious.

This week, we’ll turn to the flip side of that and jam to a heaping helping of…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “April Fools’ Follies (2018)”!

Hi, everyone!

I’m sure some of you are either preparing to pull pranks, bracing yourself for incoming pranks, or both. So while you strategically plant that whoopee cushion, jam with us for some inspiration… and maybe for some caution. Sometimes, pranks are fun, but don’t let the fooling go too far.

From fooling people, to being fooled, to fooling ourselves, to having foolish ideas, I can promise you one thing: jammin’ with us this week is not a fool’s errand, as we have a whole gag bag comically overflowing with…

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Cold Weather Choruses”!

Hi, everyone!

This time of year is a weird time for weather. It’s technically still winter, and yet, people are looking ahead to spring. And if you’re in the Chicagoland area, it’s downright confusing. One day brings torrential rain, the next brings howling wind, and the next brings torrential snow.

The clingy cold weather may be irritating for some, but remember: warm weather is just around the corner! Until then, let’s do what we can to enjoy what’s left of winter with an avalanche of…

Hi, everyone!

Here at Jammin’ with Jamie, we jam to a lot of songs celebrating people (and other individuals) who take a stand. So I’ve decided to gather a whole group of them to create a powerful demonstration of…

What do we want?!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Misfit Melodies”!

Hi, everyone!

Thank you all so much, Jammers, for tuning in for and participating in Elliott Serrano’s and my conversation about Pee-wee’s Big Holiday to celebrate the film’s one-year anniversary! Elliott and I had a wonderful and fun conversation…

… that has been immortalized on YouTube!

If you’re a Jammin’ with Jamie Jammer, it’s safe to say that you’re anything but typical… just like me!

But bands of misfits make the best music! And we’re going to prove that once and for all by jammin’ to a mix of…

Weirdos unite!

We need to talk…
